PHALLEVĀL, village in Ludhiāṇā district about 3 km south of Gujjarvāl, has a historical shrine,Gurdwārā Pātshāhī Chhevīṅ, commemorating the visit of Gurū Hargobind during his tour of the Mālvā in 1631. One Chaudharī Kanhaiyā is said to have served the Gurū with devotion and presented to him a horse, a bow and a quiver with 360 arrows. The Gurū in turn blessed him with a turban and a dagger. The shrine established here was for a long time under Udāsī priests, who surrendered its control to the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee only after a lengthy civil suit. The old ḍerā now comprises the Gurū kā Laṅgar and rooms for the staff, and provides accommodation for the local Government Girls School. A new gurdwārā has been constructed on an adjacent site with a spacious, well ventilated rectangular hall. The prakāsh asthān within the hall has a higher ceiling topped by a lotus dome with silver-plated ornamental pinnacle. The Gurdwārā is managed by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee through a local committee.
